General practitioners have advised patients to get tests at specialised sites.

As South Africa tries to contain the coronavirus outbreak, general practitioners have advised patients to get tests at specialised sites instead of visiting their doctor.

While hospitals and clinics are open to assist, if you think you have any of the following symptoms: fever, dry cough, tiredness, nasal congestion, runny nose, shortness of breath, sore throat, aches and pain, diarrhoea testing sites are available.

Here's a list of the places across the country you can visit to get tested if you suspect you have been infected:
